Who Are We?


Louis Sutton


Hey! I'm Louis, a Product Manager, fintech enthusiast and super amateur coder (I coded this website from scratch!).

As a PM, I've been lucky to lead some large teams of super smart people to build digital products for the world's biggest and most successful Banks. I've also worked at some of the Uk's fastest growing fintech's including Monzo, Starling Bank and Tilt (acquired by Airbnb). Finally, I advise a number of early stage startups on Product Strategy and Growth through my role in Accenture's Fintech Accelerator.

Last but not least, I'm a Tim Ferris fanboy, an Audible super-user and a very proud Uncle.

Hey! I’m Nick, a Londoner currently based in San Francisco in Californ-I-A.

I’m an Associate at Plug and Play Ventures where I help early-stage startups achieve scale & invest in the ones that are building cool things with awesome teams. Previously, I’ve worked on the Growth team at Tilt (acquired by Airbnb), Commercial Strategy at PPB, had a short stint at Seraphim Capital (the biggest SpaceTech investor) and was part of the New Entrepreneurs Foundation Class of 2018.

Furthermore, I’m a long-suffering Arsenal fan, dog man & long-distance runner (soon to be tennis pro…).
